Today’s reading is Luke 22:39- 71. Here is what I heard speaking to me the most:
Scripture: Luke 22: 40
On reaching that place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.”
Jesus knew what was ahead and He knew the disciples would need strength beyond their own capabilities to stay strong, so He instructed them to pray for that strength to remain on the right path.
I think He is reminding me, too, that I need to be prepared. I need to ask for His strength to keep me away from temptation and on on the right path, undistracted.
Lord, please lead me not into temptation.
Keep me from evil and guide me in keeping my focus and efforts on the path you have set for me. Blind me from all the distractions that so often jump out and grab me. Help me to find your focus and stay in tune with that. I need you to help me with this, Lord.
What about you?
What called out to you today?
Do you ask the Lord to keep you from temptation?
